Also since Miles had a part in Spider-man and is getting his own game, I wonder if they'll Spider-verse this franchise up and introduce Spider-Gwen so she can get her own DLC/spin-off in a few years.
And we may even get Spider-Ham finally as a playable character! And the return of Noir and 2099 to video games.

You have a weird definition of what makes something a "full fledged" game.

Considering it took about 60 hours to finish Spider-man + DLC, yeah, Miles seems like an expansion or more DLC.

So you base your definition of what is a full fledged game by an arbitrary amount of time it takes to finish it?

If the core gameplay is the same and the game has limited replay ability, then concluding a game that is based on another existing full game, but with one fourth the content might be considered to be less than a full game. That seems reasonable to me. And it did to Sony as well which charged $60 for Uncharted 4 and Spider-Man but charged only $30 Lost Legacy or for the shorter-than-normal-but-outstanding Ratchet & Clank (PS4).

But please feel free to explain why you think itís still a full game when Sony clearly doesnít ó as their statement this morning clarified.

Yeah, I didn't think it was that hard to follow. I'm not making some grandiose statement about all games or what I consider to be "full fledged" games. It's purely based on the game that came before, so yeah if it has 25% of the content of the previous game then it would be reasonable to consider it a spin-off.

Both Lost Legacy and Ratchet & Clank are full games though. Price isn't relevant nor is game length. Insomniac has stated Miles Morales is a stand alone game not an expansion.

Not that it detracts from your greater point, but both of those launched at $40.

I certainly wouldnít complain if Miles cost less than the first Spider-Man game, although Iím not expecting that to happen. (Heck, maybe PS5 games will have a $70 MSRP, so $60 would be a discount!). It sounds like itíll still be a full-length game by traditional standards, even though itís shorter than the previous one, so it wonít sting for me.

They haven't said, but I don't see Sony going that route. It's a sequel to one of the biggest games on the PS4. They want to sell PS5s (which may or may not be pricey). A sequel to Spider-man selling PS5s is better in the long run than short term gains by having a PS4 version.
